Question about Richard Tyner - 06/07/2016
A visitor asked: Hello, I'm trying to determine if Richard is a relative. I show a Richard Tyner was married to Agnes Sookie. One of their children was Elizabeth Liles Tyner who married William Boatwrite. One of their children was Francis Boatwrite. Francis would have been my great, great, grandmother. Do you have any records of a Richard Tyner that was married to Agnes Sookie?
User Submitted Data - 05/20/15
I received some input from a user who wanted me to correct some data on the website. This was regarding the deathplace of Dempsey Tyner. This user had a lot of data to back up his claim. Unfortunately, the data he wanted me to correct was in the user's trees area of the site. I do not see it as my place to edit this data, even if it is blatantly wrong. As I always preach, it's important to do your own research and not rely on what you read on a website. The user who contacted me definitely did this. But I thought I'd post a reminder here to never believe something you see on a website unless you've found records to back up that information.
Clarification of Myths - 08/25/13
Someone recently posted a great question in the site's Guestbook. They read the new "Myths & Misinformation" page and noticed one of the items posted contradicted what a Tyner researcher has posted on the "Trees" section of the site. This guest wanted to know why this info is still listed in the person's tree if i is wrong and I thought I should explain.

The trees posted on this site have been provided by other researchers. Like all other genealogical data, it is up to you, the researcher, to use this information as a starting point and verify another researcher's claims with facts. This goes especially for the trees here and on Ancestry.com. I feel it would be very wrong for me to edit/censor someone else's research and claim I know better so I would never do that. I can't emphasize the disclaimer at the top of the "Trees" page enough!
